Description Greg Morgan 2007-11-14 04:38:49 UTC
Description of problem:

Received a traceback on PS3 firmware 2.0 PPC with f8 installation.  I had to 
transcribe the message because ALT F[1-7] function keys were not usable.

Google reports similar problems

Traceback follows:

Running anaconda the Fedora system installer - please wait.

Traceback (most recent call last)
File"/usr/bin/anaconda", line 779, in < module>
  floppy Device = probeHW(opts, x_already_set, xserver)
File /usr/bin/anaconda line 421, in prowbeHW

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Each time the f8 installation is attempted.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I updated to PS3 firmware 2.0.
2. I created sha1sumed the PPC*iso files.  After burning the media I verified 
the media for f8 on DVD.  I also attempted a boot.iso and NFS server install.
3. I installed the kexec module as per RFE bug 235612.  I had to use the 
otheros.bld file from http://ozlabs.org/~jk/projects/petitboot/ because the 
version here http://david.woodhou.se/otheros.bld is "corrupt". ( I sent an 
email to David)
4. This was successful because I was able to boot into text mode anaconda.
5. After all all the stage one information was entered, the transition to 
anaconda produced a pcidom trace back.
Actual results:
Failed to install f8 on PS3 PPC hardware.

Expected results:
Installation of f8 on PS3.

Additional info:
Is there some additional hardware information that you'd like me to attach in 
order to solve or investigate the error?
